If you're looking to spend £199 on a TV, you're unlikely to be in the market for 4K or 55"

Never said that I said 'for £120 more' hardly going to break the bank. …Never said that I said 'for £120 more' hardly going to break the bank. That is for a 55inch I'm sure there is a cheaper 4k 40inch.


I use £20 notes to start our coal fire, and that's not to show off. I'd use £5's or £10's but those new notes just don't burn as well. Having said that, £120 is a lot of money to some common folk so your argument isn't the best.

On a budget of £200 the only other TVs for this price were 32 inch so I feel like for the money it is a pretty great deal. Sound and picture look great and apps load fast.

Reviews suggest that it is a good tv when it works - most of the bad reviews on Amazon are to do with the device having faults either soon after purchase, and within the 30 days exchange, or it being faulty within the 1 year warranty period. Generally people are happy with the picture quality.

Appears a good deal if you are prepared to exchange it within 30 days.

Its cheap because it is cheaply made with component more likely to develop faults.

Its a good deal, however I wont be biting as I want reliability. I dont want to replace a TV months down the line.

The Sharp brand is owned by Hisense and the TVs come from a Slovakian company which also makes televisions with Akai, Alba, Bush, Goodmans, Sharp, Technika, Blaupunkt and Tevion badges. They are not all made to the same standards, though: the brand owners will dictate the specifications they want, and set the prices accordingly.

I suspect Hisense reserve the better quality products for themselves, however as £100 cheaper than the equivalent Hisense this is a good deal, for those that dont receive faulty ones.

It is indeed a lot of money but no for what you're buying and what you're getting extra. I understand your point but in my view its worth it. I wasn't arguing I was just telling you. I never said £120 isn't a lot of money and for your arguement most people have £700 IPhones or Samsungs, so a £329 tv is relatively cheap.

I was only joking. To be fair, all tv's are stupidly cheap these days so It all depends what you want and need. 4k wouldn't be worth it at 40" if you ask me...... unless you're using it as a pc monitor

Oh haha can never tell online haha yes they are! I don't know depends what you want, some people and I for one prefer 4k, looks incredible! A lot of things seem to be dropping massively in price, laptops, phones and tv's alike. Not that I'm complaining

Sharp. Should change name to sheeite. Worst display and sound ever after the one I bought on Black Friday 2 years ago. Have to near wait until it’s dark to see , any daylight hits it and you may as well turn it off. Speakers crap. I thought I had forgot to remove some protective tape as it always sounds muffled . Apart from that she’s a real good goin yoke
At one point Sharp made some of the best LCD TV's money could buy, in 2007/8 people would travel far and wide to find stock. Sadly now they're just trading on their (former) good name and have UMC manufacture their TV's in Europe, at one point they were also using Vestel. These are the same quality as the likes of Seiki and Cello, they actually use the same boards. You might be able to pick up a similar Seiki or Cello slightly cheaper and at the same time support British jobs as they're both assembled here.

Scrub the last part about finding one cheaper, just noticed this was for the 40" model and not the 32" - not a bad deal.

nicely said!!
i have a similar sharp model and picture is good but sound is terrible and you likely will need a soundbar, especially if you enjoy watching films. Also as a Sky Remote Control User, i hate having to use two remote controls now (see info below) so check which version remote control if this is an issue for you.


Important note. Most models of Sharp TV’s launched from August 2015 onwards use the very latest ‘RF’ technology as opposed to earlier models which use the previous technology called Infrared (IR).

Currently, Sky use the older ‘IR’ technology, therefore, their Sky remotes (up to and including Rev 10) cannot operate our newer models of TV’s that use ‘RF’ remote controls. (The same applies to the vast majority of models launched by most of the premium brands whose models launched from Jan 2015).

In the future, Sky should launch remote controls using ‘RF’ technology which will mean you will be able to use a Sky Remote to operate the basic functions of any new Sharp TV. (as well as most other premium brands).
Looking to buy a TV for my bedroom.

Only for now and again use, not a constant use thing.

Can anyone vouch for this TV model and it's standards to live up to it's spec?

Looks good for the price!

I bought this and so far so good. Sound sounds good to me but is only in a small room and picture is great especially on the HD channels. Honestly for the money I was very impressed. The closest next to this I found was a hisense 39" at Argos for £260 so this one is bigger and £60 less.
Beware Virgin don't support Sharp TV remote codes, dunno why Sharp have publicly tried to contact Virgin but there is no reply from them on supporting these TV's. These might be made by UMC under a badged brand but I got a smaller 32 from Tesco at a bargain deal and the picture is fab!

You are missing the fact that very few of those will have went out and spent £700/£1000 on the phone though, most will be on contracts Those who can afford a grand on a phone don't think about it and just sign up for a £50 a month contract without thinking, those who can't afford it, sign up for contracts as they can't buy the phone upfront.

Also, not much point buying a 55" 4k TV if you only have space for a 40", I bought a 50" last year thinking I would squeeze it in somehow, I couldn't so had to be returned
I bought the 49inch version of this for the same price over a year ago Tesco Black Friday sale.


Its a good TV, can connect it to a media server or add a USB stick/drive to play films from.

Oh Julie.. I was talking in terms or value not literal. Forgive me if I'm wrong but contracts you do end up paying the phone after a period of time wether thats 12 or 24 months? + a £1000 on contract will be much more as you need to add on air time etc so even if its an £800 phone on a 24 month contract let's add a £10 a month air time fees thats £240 for 24 months which means you're paying £1040 or £500 a year.. So actually buying a £700 outright does seem to bad when on contract you will be paying £500 for two years.

As for that well yes, unless you're an idiot you buy what you can fit in your house, unless you have an ego.

Maybe you should save up some of those 20’s and buy yourself some central heating

Where's the fun in that?
I wonder why they're using RF remotes, makes no sense when every other manufacturer is using IR with the exception of those supplying an extra Bluetooth smart remote.

What ever happened to sharp TVs? You were considered well off back in the 90's with this brand of tv. Just don't see them around nower days
jdddd22 h, 29 m ago

£120 more can get 4k and 55inch, very cold deal.

If I was looking at something around the £150 it makes paying a extra £50 for this look okay.

Thank you!

Using one as I type this comment to you right now.

Sound system is beautiful, asks to set wall mount or stand sound.

Picture is so crisp.

Miracast works instantly.

Couldn't be happier!
Like LaughingRoom, I got the 49" model in the Tesco Black Friday sale for £199 and the sound and picture are fine, just tweak them both to taste. In fact the sound is very good and full range but then again it does boast Harmon Kardon had a hand in the sound. It is fantastic value for money and looks good (thin frame and little feet.

Yay, I am really pleased you like it. Set up was so simple and fast. Plug in and attach the aerial lead, add wifi for netflix etc and good to go. Took me about 5 minutes. I had to post the deal here as I was so impressed with the tv too for the budget.
Isn't this just another rebated Vestel? Proper TVs are Sony, Samsung, LG and Panasonic (exc 300 budget series)
